    170. 188. &quot;Linux is a cancer that attaches itself in an intellectual property sense to everything it touches,” Steve Ballmer – Microsoft Corp
    171. 189. &quot;What hobbyist can put 3-man years into programming, finding all bugs, documenting his product and distribute for free? The fact is, no one besides us has invested a lot of money..” Bill Gates 1987
    172. 190. &quot;..we will create a level playing field for open source software in IT procurement and open up the procurement system to small and innovative companies…” David Cameron – Conservative Party Leader
    173. 191. &quot;The internet age is transforming politics and has the capacity to transform government. Let’s start being open source right now.” George Osbourne – Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer
    174. 192. &quot;Four things ought to be avoided. The first is a lock-in, an indefinite commitment to a single proprietary solution..” John Pugh – Liberal Democrat MP
    175. 193. &quot;Writing non-free software is not an ethically legitimate activity, so if people who do this run into trouble, that's good! All businesses based on non-free software ought to fail, and the sooner the better” Richard Stallman
    176. 194. &quot;I'm doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won't be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. ” Linus Torvalds 1990
    177. 195. &quot;If something's expensive to develop, and somebody's not going to get paid, it won't get developed. So you decide: Do you want software to be written, or not? ” Bill Gates
    178. 196. &quot; given enough eyeballs, all bugs are shallow &quot;. More formally: &quot;Given a large enough beta-tester and co-developer base, almost every problem will be characterized quickly and the fix will be obvious to someone.&quot; Eric S. Raymond from &quot;The Cathedral and the Bazaar&quot;.
    179. 197. &quot;Open source is neither an industry fad, nor a magic bullet. Rather, the development methods commonly encompassed by the term open source have provided customers and developers with additional options among many in the technology ecosystem.&quot; Microsoft.com Website 2008
